General information about the area: Mt Wilson is a cold climate garden area situated off the Bells Line of Road in the Blue Mountains region of NSW Australia and a short drive from Sydney. It is best known for it’s beautiful gardens and historic homes but is also surrounded by National Parks and is the major gateway for bushwalkers and canyoners. The local Rural Fire Service provide an amazing service to the community in fire and storm protection and have received many awards for their dedicated service to the communities of Mt Wilson and Mt Irvine. They are also first responders to motor vehicle accidents both within the villages and on the Bells Line of Road, to lost bushwalkers and canyoners in trouble. This is a major fund raiser to ensure that this service continues into the future.
